My brother is cooking up something interesting over at chasing Tremendous:
chasing Tremendous is an initiative founded by Mark Mulvey to celebrate depth of thought, elegant descriptions, and passionate learning, but outside of the walls of academia and with a sexier flame backlighting the pursuit. By recasting historically difficult or tedious concepts, and by discovering hidden connections between dissimilar disciplines or genres, it becomes possible to get turned on by ideas and inspired to engage in more tremendous pursuits. The idea is to avoid mediocrity and thinness of thought in favor of more adventurous topics and experiences with more grit. The potential for intensity must always be high, and the bias must always lean toward action.
He’s younger than me and smarter than me.
